    Just curious what you guys have put on your trucks, i have a 2002 2500 ex cab and want to do shocks this spring but after a bud bought some monroe at advanced for his tahoe his truck lowered 1 inch, i want a decent shock that doesnt mess up my ride height.

    I like my KYB Monomax shocks. Got them because they were advertised as being heavy duty, for plow trucks. No complaints at all.

    I replaced the Bilsteins on my wifes 1500 with Pro Comps, because the Bilsteins are just too pricy. Not crazy about the ride now, very stiff.

    Put kyb monomax shocks on all 4 corners of mine last fall. Absolutely no complaints. Bought at Car parts wholesale.com. Cheaper than bilsteins.

    All comes down to personal preference, I like the Edlebrock IAS, eliminates body roll on corners and wheel hop and rides really nice.
